Linen fabric care instructions (after washing):

  • Straighten the linen fabric immediately after washing and hang to dry.
  • Avoid using a tumble dryer. It consumes natural fabrics.
  • Mangle or iron linen fabric when it’s moist.
  • Washing and ironing straight linen shrinks about 7%
  • Store linen products straight or rolled , as the linen fiber is fragile, which brakes easily if folded in long term storage.
